About the Author:

Mario Salvadori, author of The Art of Construction, Why Buildings Stand Up, and many other books, was an internationally known architect, mathematician, and teacher whose career spanned more than 60 years. A longtime resident of New York City, Dr. Salvadori died in June, 1997. Joseph P. Wright is a professor of applied mathematics at Columbia University.

From Booklist:

Salvadori, the author of numerous architectural titles (The Art of Construction [1990]), turns his attention to mathematics in this offering. The topics include basic arithmetic operations, plane and solid geometry, graphing, simultaneous linear equations, and probability. Each chapter begins with an introduction explaining the concept, followed by a list of problems for readers to solve. Although these activities are mathematically sound, the term game is a misnomer (as is the heading for the exercises--"Math Camp"), making this much more likely to appeal to middle-school teachers than to their students. Recommended for larger collections or libraries with great demand for this subject; answers appended. Kay Weisman
